Oddball package and portupgrade

I have a non standard package installed on a FreeBSD box. It is the FreeBSD 
version of Adaptec's RAID management software.

I want to use portupgrade to manage the other packages and ports on that 
same server however portupgrade gets very upset about this non-standard 
package and refuses to run any command:

myserver# portupgrade -an
--->  Session started at: Fri, 14 May 2004 12:34:27 -0600
adptfbsd_304: Not in due form: <name>-<version>
--->  Session ended at: Fri, 14 May 2004 12:34:27 -0600 (consumed 00:00:00)

I tried following the instructions in the man page by putting in a 
"+IGNOREME" into the package's directory (/var/db/pkg/adptfbsd_304/) but I 
still get the same error.

How can I get portupgrade to ignore this installed package?
